T-u-r-t-l-e power
T-u-r-t-l-e power
T-u-r-t-l-e power
Teenage mutant ninja turtle

On a half shell, they're the heroes, four
In this day and age who could ask for more?
The crime wave is high with muggings mysterious
Our police and detective are furious

'Cause they can't find the source
Of this lethally evil force
This is serious, so give me a quarter
I was a witness, get me a reporter

Call April O'Neil in on this case, and
You'd better hurry up, there's no time to waste
We need help, like quick, on the double
Have pity on the city, man it's in trouble

We need heroes like the lone ranger
When tonto came pronto, when there was danger
They didn't say they'd be there in half an hour
'Cause they displayed

Turtle power
T-u-r-t-l-e power
T-u-r-t-l-e power
T-u-r-t-l-e power
Teenage mutant ninja turtle

T-u-r-t-l-e power
T-u-r-t-l-e power
T-u-r-t-l-e power
Teenage mutant ninja turtle

Now, our miss reporter was hot on the trail
Determined to put these crooks in jail
She spied the bad guys and saw what happened
But before she knew it, she fell in a trap and got caught

Yeah, she was all alone
With no friends and no phone
Now, this was beyond her worst dreams
'Cause she was concerned by some wayward teens

Headed by shredder, they were anything but good
Misguided, unloved, they called them, the foot
They could terrorize and be angry youth, and
They mugged the people who needed proof?

Then from out of the dark came an awesome sound
Shouted, "Cowabunga", as they hit the ground
From the field of weeds, the heroes rescued the flower
'Cause they possessed

Turtle power
T-u-r-t-l-e power
T-u-r-t-l-e power
T-u-r-t-l-e power
Teenage mutant ninja turtle

T-u-r-t-l-e power
T-u-r-t-l-e power
T-u-r-t-l-e power
Teenage mutant ninja turtle

Do you stand for what you believe in?
And find the strength to do what's right?

That's turtle power
Heroes on a half shell, they're on a mission
When there's a battle, got the enemy wishin'
That they stayed at home, instead of fightin'
These ninja masters with moves like lightnin'

They were once normal but now they're mutants
Splinter's the teacher, so, they are the students
Leonardo, Michaelangelo and Donatello
Make up this group with one other follow

Raphael, he's the leader of the group
Transformed from the norm by the nuclear goop
Pizza's the food, that's sure to please
These ninjas are into pepperoni and cheese

Back to the story, it's not hard to find
Ninjas not just of the body but of the mind
These are the words that their master instructed
But a letter from shredder has splinter abducted

That was the last straw, spring into action
Step on the foot, now they're gonna lose traction
Now this is for real, so you fight for justice
Your shell is hard, so you shout, "They can't dust us", four
Like some old coffee table

Since you were young, you've been willing and able
To defeat the snake, protect the weak
Fight for rights and the freedom to speak
Now the villain is showin', so you take a stand

Back to the wall, put your sword in your hand
Remember the words of your teacher, your master
"Evil moves fast, but good moves faster"

Then light, shining for your illumination
Good versus evil equals confrontation
So when you're in trouble, don't give in and go sour
Try to rely on your

Turtle power
T-u-r-t-l-e power
T-u-r-t-l-e power
T-u-r-t-l-e power
Teenage mutant ninja turtle

T-u-r-t-l-e power
T-u-r-t-l-e power
T-u-r-t-l-e power
Teenage mutant ninja turtle

T-u-r-t-l-e power
T-u-r-t-l-e power
T-u-r-t-l-e power
Teenage mutant ninja turtle power
